Tabs Stop Working When Characteristic Changed

Hello All,

I'm working on a new site that utilizes the JoomlaWorks Tabs & Slides plugin in the product description area. All was working fine until I added a Characteristic to the product. When the product page is first opened, the Tabs & Slides work as expected, but as soon as a different Variant of the Characteristic is selected, the description area reverts to the first tab position and no other tabs will work although the Characteristic can still be changed.

Nicolas, I will send you a link to a sample page via email as we are still awaiting approval for use of some graphics that are on the page.

Regards,
Ed

That's probably because the tab and slide content plugin's javascript doesn't initialize on the fly, and since the descriptions can differ from one variant to another, hikashop copies the descriptions on the fly.

The easiest will be o edit the file show of the view product via the menu Display->Views and remove the code below from it:

<div id="hikashop_product_description_<?php echo $variant_name;?>" style="display:none;">
<?php echo JHTML::_('content.prepare',preg_replace('#<hr *id="system-readmore" */>#i','',$variant->product_description));?>
</div>

Thanks Nicolas, That did fix the problem. What would be the downside from removing that bit of code?

If you want to have a different description for each of your variants, that won't be possible anymore.

OK - Shouldn't be a problem on this site; just as long as the image changes it should be good.

So if a description is added to the variant it will replace the main product description entirely? Guess I wasn't aware that it worked that way but if so, it's good to know. (I know, read the docs dummy... Ya might learn somethin' :lol:)

Thanks,
Ed

Yes. When you enter something in a variant, it overrides the main product information.

Will this work-around still be needed in 1.5.4?

Thanks,

You need to edit the file "show" of the view "product" via the menu Display->Views of HikaShop.
